Medical Fund Raising

Hi my name is Michelle Norbert and I am a 37 year old wife and mother of two beautiful children, and if you know me well enough you would know that this is my only way of getting assistance as I am not one to ask for help and put my private life on the internet, but I am desperate this time.....Wow where do I begin. It all started when I was 17. When I went for a normal physical examine and my doctor placed the stethoscope to examine my heart and heard irregular heartbeats. She immediately gave me a letter to see the cardiologist the very next day. We went into to see him and ran some test but the one test that I needed to detect and diagnose the real reason he did not have so he diagnosed me with a heart murmur and requested I see him in 1 years time with caution to stay away from anything too stressful and that would further affect my heart in which I did. I lived my life and enjoyed it the best and safest way I knew how which was to accept Jesus into my life..I started working and got married at the age of 21 to my best friend, we were high school sweethearts lol lol. I seemed fine. I would get the same symptoms but as with every challenge in my life I managed. In 2003 we got pregnant with a blessed and handsome little boy. My gynecologist was concerned because then I started falling ill and sent me back to my cardiologist who assured that both baby and I would be fine.As he had predicted I was and so was my baby but with much challenges we made it.Then 2 years later I started falling ill only to find out another surprise we were expecting once again to a beautiful baby girl.I was ill throughout my pregnancy and had to be making constant visits to the hospital throughout but we made it again. A few years after I gave birth to my daughter. I started experiences stroke like symptoms on the left side of my body. My arm and foot would swell and I would be screaming in excruciating pain and I would knock out. So we went back to my cardiologist who again ran test and then diagnosed me with a terminal heart condition known as Ventricular Tachycardia  and an Arrhythmia of the right ventricle and that I would be in need of an Implantable  Cardioverter Defibrillator if not I would die. After not being financially able to have this done our other problem was that where I live they were not yet being done so we had to get it done in Miami. So it was done in 2008 with the assistance of my Uncle, Mom and husband. Every 5 years I have to replace the battery so in 2014 with the support of my family,friends and husband and taking loans I had to have it changed. Emotionally ,financially and physically I cannot explain how challenging this has been for not only myself but for my family and loved ones especially my two wonderful children. We have tried to host bbq's and sponsor sheets to assist with medical expenses but they have not been enough...To top up my heart problem I started getting headaches and angioedema from 2016 into 2018 with fevers, swollen feet, rashes, throwing up,sensitivity to light,sun,swollen tummy to name a few which has even landed me at the hospital..I had numerous test done and now I have been diagnosed with An Auto Immune Disorder called SLE Lupus which has affected my entire body so I have been placed on meds and a special diet. My doctors are concerned about my heart since I already have an issue with it so I have to go back to Miami where they can check my heart and the defib. The test here and overseas are costly and my doctors have removed me from work due to the symptoms that I face almost daily.It is too much stress on my body and heart so I am requesting financial assistance please. Ours families, husband and friends have all tried  to help come up with the monies but we have not been able to come up with all. Plus with the diet and medications that I am on it has added a further burden on us.

Whatever amount that you can donate would be greatly appreciated or you can kindly share this message in assisting  me with my further tests and treatments.

A Savings Deposit Account has been created especially for those funds at "Bank Of St. Lucia Limited" account # 511841855 under the name of Michelle Norbert.

May God Bless and Keep you.
